Capt. Will Robertson Co Host
Will started his coaching and consulting career in 1985 with the formation of Performance Strategies, Inc. His first contract was with a company called PacTel and was about to get into the wireless mobile telephone industry. From there Will was asked by Motorola to create and deliver a program for their "factory direct" sales team and that led to his company contracting with every Bell Operating company in the USA.
Will has worked with other industry sectors including banking and finance, insurance, automotive, energy, housing, transportation, pharmaceutical and medical device makers.
Will is a published author and video producer, having created over 100 articles on the topics of sales, CRM, management, customer service and marketing. His nationally acclaimed sales training program Selling Below the Price Line has been taught to over 45,000 sales professionals and is still one of the most popular programs in the sales industry. When he met Jay McDowell in the fall of 2016 it was a business match from the start. They both decided to "fly in formation," with both of them being licensed pilots. The partnership has been both rewarding and client centered.
Performance Strategies is a team of committed, positive and successful people who are always striving to be balanced, integral and honest. We will work within our “14 Points of Culture” to make sure that everyone who touches, or is touched by the Performance Strategies team, will benefit greatly and in some way move closer to becoming the person they want to be or achieve the goals they want to achieve.
We will always work in “co-opetition” with all those who believe they are in competition with us. We are in the business of “Edutainment.” We will educate ourselves, our clients and all those whom we work with, while we entertain them and create a fun learning environment. We will educate our clients in world-class marketing and business development techniques using audio,video, CD’s, other technologies and simple workbooks, workshops and seminar formats. Our products and services will be of the highest quality, value for money and, whether sourced from within the company or externally, will always add the most value and use the latest and most effective training methodologies available.
